Office Hours Change for 2018

Generally, someone will be in the office Mon-Thur until 4:30 pm and until 2:30 pm on Fridays, but please call ahead if you need to come by later in the afternoon, as often times someone may be available later than 4:30 Mon-Thur.



That’s KISSS for Knit, Inspire, Sew, Scrap, or Stamp – but you are welcome to join us whatever your craft! KISSS Day will be held at the church on Saturday, January 20, from 9:00 am—9:00 pm. It will be a full day of fun and fellowship! Contact Linda Stroud at 860.212.9616 or to register or for more information. The cost is $25 (proceeds to be donated toward an SUMC mission).


Volunteer Greeters for 10:30 Service

Hello, I’m Angela Church and the new volunteer trying to arrange greeters for the 10:30 service and need your help!

Please contact me if you would be willing to support this important ministry on a few Sundays throughout the church year. I can be reached at 860.658.2183 home 860.559.0861 cell or at


Church Keys

If you used to head a committee or did some volunteer work with the church, but are no longer using a key that was once assigned to you, please take a moment to return it to the office. They are costly when we need to make more. If you have a large square golden key marked “DO NOT DUPLICATE” on one side and an A, B, D, O, or X on the other side, please drop it off at the office or stick it in an envelope and drop it in the Sunday plate—be sure to include you r name so we know who it came from. Thank you for taking a moment to look and see if you have a key you no longer need! Contact Michelle in the church office with any questions.
